Monday with Dr. Heimerl ~ Nov. 14th at 11am 50 Unhealthiest Foods on the Planet:
You are what you eat is a slogan we have all heard of and brushed off. This statement couldn't be more true. But many times we think we are eating healthy only to find out we are not. The food you eat can either be the safest and most powerful form of medicine or the slowest form of poison! CALL 652-0116 to RSVP
The Lakeshore Senior Pedalers averaged eleven riders each week throughout the biking season, totaling over 5,000 miles, despite six rides either being cancelled or shortened due to rain. We had an extremely interesting tour at the Hamilton Wood Type and Printing Museum on one of our rides. Another highlight of this season was the interurban trail from Port Washington to Cedarburg, with its unique architecture on their main street and enchanting outdoor deli with lovely flower garden and cozy atmosphere. Another yearly favorite, attended by seventeen riders, was the Fox River Trail from Greenleaf and riding along the Fox River through DePere and Green Bay. Each year we meet new people who enjoy biking and we never have a lack of conversation while riding and eating. We look forward to the next biking season! Watch for our organizational meeting held in April at the Senior Center!

The Fall 2016 leaf pickup is scheduled to begin in October and scheduled to be picked up once a week on your street sweeping day. Pick up will run October 10th through November 18th. The goal is to complete pickup in each section each week. Depending on weather, volume of leaves and equipment, there may be times a section is not completed. Please be patient, leaves will be picked up the following week. There will be a residential NO PARKING BAN from 7a-3p on the day of your pickup, which is the same day as your street sweeping parking ban. Vehicles parked on the street between 7a and 3p will be ticketed. This is being implemented to facilitate picking up the leaves much faster. NO BRUSH OR GARDEN WASTE WILL BE PICKED UP Residents may take brush and garden waste to the Manitowoc County compost sites or contact a private hauler. Call 6834333 for compost site information. STREETS WITH A PARKING LANE If you street has a parking lane, leaves should be placed in the parking lane of the street in front of your residence, the evening before your street sweeping day.

Please do not place leaf piles near or over catch basins. STREETS WITHOUT A PARKING LANE If there is no parking lane on your street, there is no change, and leaves should continue to be placed on the terrace. Please make sure that you do not pile leaves around trees, light poles an any other obstacles in the terrace.
Plans are currently underway for the placement of a memorial honoring the Red Arrow 32nd Infantry Division on the south side of Red Arrow park.

Enjoy “50 Reasons to get out of bed in the morning”, a fun little book created by the staff of Silver Lake College in the 1980’s. Buy yourself a gift, just for fun. Must an aarpie have a reason for buying him/herself a gift? Absolutely not! How about rewarding yourself for just being you? After all it’s a perfectly valid reason—although it might be well to avoid telling the clerk that (or at least try to look humble as you say it). Maybe you need an extra lift, and pampering yourself from time to time is great—and delightful. You can be just as frivolous or as practical as your big heart desires...or you little billfold allows. Only you will know. Incidentally (and it’s really not incidental), remember that you’ll have to get out of bed before you shop. You might even meet some friends along the way who are doing the same thing. Perhaps a fellow aarpie would like to go with you. Buy yourself a gift from our Holiday Fair on November 6!
Visit nursing homes, hospitals, shut ins. Imagine the people who cannot get out and do the things they would like to do. Show a little compassion; take a little time to “drop in” and visit. You’ll feel good about yourself because you’ve mad the day brighter for somebody else. The socializing is very good for you and it’s wonderful for them...so make that extra effort. And when you walk in the door, remember Reason number four (that rhymes but the reason is far more important than the rhyme): Volunteer...think seriously about singing up. The more you give, aarpie, the more you’ll have left—and the bigger person you will become (even if you start at 98 pounds! Consider joining one of the Center’s Entertainment Groups, which go out to area nursing homes/assisted living facilities.

Below is the answer to the Brain Teaser from page 11. No peeking if you haven’t tried to figure it out yet! Primary Evidence: James took the photo from inside the house, and the camera flash reflected off a dark window, which acted as a mirror. The Benson twins were never caught in the act, and James ended up with a photo of himself.

20 Exercise of the Month: Upper Body Exercise - Side Arm or Lateral Raises Benefits: Improves functional ability help you perform everyday activities, particularly lifting objects. From putting something heavy on a shelf to hauling boxes. Strong shoulders give you the functional ability and strength to lift. This also can minimize your injury risk from straining while attempting to lift a heavy item or catching an item in the air. It Sitting Lateral Raise also strengthens stabilizer muscles including the rotator cuff, upper and mid back muscles, chest and arm muscles. Your abdominals are also activated while they try to steady your body. SO.. How do you do it? You can do this exercise while standing or sitting in a sturdy, armless chair or on a bosu ball as you see here. Keep feet flat on the floor even, shoulder -width apart. Hold hand weights straight down at your sides with palms facing inward. Slowly breathe out as you raise both arms to the side to shoulder height. You can also stand while performing this exercise. Hold the position for 1 second. Breathe in as you slowly lower Standing Lateral Raise arms to the sides. Repeat 10 to 15 times. Rest. Then repeat 10 to 15 more times. Tips: When using weights, take 3 seconds to lift or push a weight into place, hold the position for 1 second, and take another 3 seconds to return to your starting position. Don't let the weight drop; returning it slowly is very important. Breathe out as you lift or push a weight and breathe in as you relax. Don't hold your breath during strength exercises. This could affect your blood pressure, especially if you have heart disease. Use smooth, steady movements to bring weights into position. Avoid jerking or thrusting movements. As always, check with your doctor before beginning any exercise program. Source: www.nihseniorhealth.gov & www.healthyliving.azcentral.com

22 Ingredients 4 cups self-rising flour 1 tablespoon sugar 1 tablespoon baking powder 3/4 teaspoon salt 2/3 cup vegetable shortening, chilled 1 (15oz) can sweet potatoes, drained 2 cups buttermilk, chilled 1/4 cup all purpose flour 2 tablespoon unsalted butter, melted
Directions ~Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Line large baking sheet with parchment paper ~Whisk self-rising flour, sugar, baking powder and salt in a mixing bowl. Cut in shortening until mixture resembles sand and pebbles. Pat sweet potatoes dry and chop; toss with flour mixture. Gently mix in buttermilk. ~Knead dough gently 3 or 4 times on a lightly floured counter. Roll out to 3/4 inch thickness. Cut with a 2 1/2 inch biscuit cutter.

Ingredients Milk 2 packages of Pumpkin Spice Jell-O instant pudding 2 containers of Cool Whip Graham Crackers Supplies: 3 oz. clear plastic cups or similar Gallon size Ziploc bags Directions 1.Prepare both packages of Jell-O according to the directions on the box and mix in one container of thawed Cool Whip. Place the Jell-O in the refrigerator to cool. 2. While the Jell-O is cooling put your graham crackers in a Ziploc bag and crush them with a rolling pin or spoon. Hereâ€™s a quick tip for filling the cups, put them in a muffin pan to keep them upright and transport them safely. Sprinkle the bottom of each cup with a layer of crushed graham crackers. Spoon the chilled pudding into the cups leaving enough room at the top for the cool whip. 3. Next, take one container of thawed Cool Whip and scoop it into a gallon size Ziploc bag. Squeeze all the Cool Whip towards one of the bottom corners, then snip off the end to create a pastry bag. Squeeze the bag and squirt the Cool Whip on top of each cup. When finished, sprinkle the remaining crushed graham crackers on top of your mini pumpkin pies. ~This recipe makes about 20 if using the small 3oz. Cups.~

Kenneth McGlin The Lakeshore Red Hatters meet for Tea the 2nd Friday of every month at the Senior Center at 1:30. All ladies are welcome. October hostesses were Bonnie Willems, Debbie Wellems, Dorothy Vandenhueval and Lynn Troska. They served chili, which really hit the spot with the cool weather here. There were a lot of pirates around. They were all different and I suppose they all traveled different areas of the world doing what pirates do. The October birthdays were Audrey Behnke, Evie Schnieder, Joyce Morrison. Joy Krejcarek, Kathy Welch, Debbie Willems and Terry Prigge. The November hostesses are Diane Cisler, Evie Schneider and Sue Schuh. The luncheon for November is on Friday Nov. 11th at Greenstreet, at 11:30a. At the Nov. Tea, Jean Moore from the Historical Society will be the program. She will talk about the civil war. We received a thank you note from the DVC. The Christmas Party will be at Seven Lakes on Dec 9 at 11:30a. The cost is $16.00. Terry Prigge will be collecting at the November meeting. There is some talk about exchanging gifts this Christmas. Think about it and we will discuss it and decide. On Dec 3rd there will be a craft show at Franklin School. That will be a good time to Christmas shopping. Funny bone Ticklers As the Dr. leaned in to examine the Red Hat lady, she got a little frisky, “You remind me of my 3rd husband.” she said, coyly. “Third husband,” the Dr. asked, “How many have you had?” The Red Hat lady replied, “Two.” Have a great Red Hat day, Terry
November Movie: The Meddler Showtime: Tue. Nov. 15th at 1:00pm With a new iPhone, an apartment near the Grove, and a comfortable bank account left to her by her beloved late husband, Marnie Minervini has happily relocated from New Jersey to Los Angeles to be near her daughter Lori, a successful (but still single) screenwriter, and smother her with motherly love. But when the dozens of texts, unexpected visits, and conversations dominated by unsolicited advice force Lori to draw strict personal boundaries, Marnie finds ways to channel her eternal optimism and forceful generosity to change the lives of others - as well as her own - and find a new purpose in life. Director/Writer, Lorena Scafaria, wrote this movie based on her real life relationship with her mother. PG 13—Comedy, Drama (100 minutes) Free for members. Nonmember guests may attend for $1/ea. A Big Thank You to our sponsor HomeCare Health for providing yummy treats during the movie.
